What’s the first thing you think about when the seasons change?

I know what I used to think and feel.
First sign of fall.
Mild panic.
Trying  to remember what size I was last fall.

Was I thinner?
Moderate panic.
What will I wear now?
Did I keep the “fat clothes” (please please yes – frantically dig them out)?
OR
Was I fatter?
Anxious.
Should I buy smaller clothes? Will this size last? What if it doesn’t?
OR
I don’t even know what size I am now?
Numb.
Scour the closet to see how many stretchy clothes I have.
I once lived an entire winter in Lululemons and Juicy tracksuits.
I don’t think I looked in the mirror once that entire season.

No fun, this rollercoaster between mild and severe panic
and a whole lot of out-of-control feelings in between.

Now, no matter which season we’re moving into
I have one size in my closet.
It’s nice and sparse.
And all the clothes are the same size.

Every day, same season, new season, I open my closet
And there are all my clothes
that all fit the same.
It’s such a relief
and such freedom.

Want to throw out all the sizes that don’t fit you?
Want your only thoughts about new seasons to be thoughts about the new season?
Ready for The Season of You?
Join me and four other students in a brand new, three month class

What to wear will be a sideline. A fun one.
What to dream of for the New Year? We’ll cover that one too.
And one resolution that won’t be on the list: ending your diet war.

About Forever Free with Bev Aron, Certified Weight Loss Coach

I work with emotional eaters who desperately want relief from emotional eating, but can't seem to do it on their own. They know they need to eat less and move more, but can't figure out why they aren't doing it. My specialty is showing them the why and the how. I also work with parents who are worried about their children's weight. I help those parents encourage their children to have a healthy body image and a healthy relationship with food.
